The BA (Hons) Philosophy and Literature covers a range of approaches. Literature uses a wide range of authors and texts, from classic to contemporary, explores literature in a global context and looking in-depth at language and literary history. Philosophy involves an in-depth study of the development of Western intellectual tradition.
Philosophy seeks to understand, and particularly to question, ideas concerning the nature of reality, value and experience that play a pervasive role in understanding the world and ourselves. The philosophy discipline focuses on problematic concepts, such as existence, reason and truth, which occur in every sphere of human enquiry, but more specifically on problematic concepts that belong to particular areas of thought and practice, such as politics, economics, religion, science and ethics.
